louis’ new lines



Why limit artistic collaborations to ready-to-wear? For his Resort collection for Louis Vuitton, art lover Marc Jacobs worked with London-based fashion illustrator Tanya Ling. In addition to producing a painterly stripe print that was worked up into snappy separates, Ling filled the showroom in which the collection was modeled with life-size reproductions of what she calls her “funny little creatures.” Ling, who at one time worked for Christian Lacroix, really seems to be blowing up: On June 26 at the Barbican, the artist will give a live illustration performance inspired by Viktor & Rolf’s Fall collection.
